Project mapping may require substantial time when planning and scheduling the design and construction activities for a large project. The multifaceted Little Blue Run Stackwaste Impoundment project involved design and construction of a dam, reservoir, pumphouse, pipeline, and roads, all of which were completed on a fast-track schedule. Heavy summer foliage and a variety of immediate project needs required a flexible and innovative program to reduce project mapping. The basic approach involved utilizing existing control, photography, and mapping (where possible). By supplementing existing photography with new photography, judiciously choosing map scales, and employing a variety of mapping techniques, adequate mapping was produced for all project needs on schedule and within budget.
